What Makes Papaya Playa Project so Great? 

  • The Full Moon Party 

The Full Moon party happens monthly at the Papaya Playa Project and is one of the biggest crowd pullers. These parties happen on the Saturday closest to the full moon and are famous worldwide.

One of the best features of the party is that it boasts guest DJs and musicians from around the world in addition to the resident DJ. So once you head over to the party, you will be dancing throughout the night.

However, it is essential to keep in mind that Papaya Playa Project intends to lessen the impact these parties may have on the environment. As a result, the parties allow a limited number of people only. Hotel guests and close community members are given priority over others.

  • Saturday Nights 

In addition to the Full Moon Party, you can also head over to the Papaya Playa Project on any other Saturday for a great night. The party can go on until 3 or 4 am.

The biggest crowd-pullers are the parties in December, January, and New Year’s Eve. However, it would be best if you booked in advance to avoid waiting for hours.

  • Beach Setting 

Papaya Playa Project is located close to the beautiful Beach Town in Tulum, which means that guests get to let loose in the refreshing ambience.

  • Great Food and Drinks

  • Excellent Service
